SharePoint 2010 Activity Stream

  • SharePoint 2010 Activity Stream Emon

    Is it possible to extend the activity stream in SP2010? Out of the box, the activity only contains data from a user's mysite and profile changes. I would like to feed in a user's activity from other sites within the farm. For example, if there is a team site in the farm which has a discussion board and the user starts a new discussion or posts a reply, I would like his followers to know about the update. The update should only be seen by the user's followers who has access to that team site.

    Also, it would be great if you can direct me to an article that talks about the architecture of activity stream.


  • Yes, you can add your own activity providers to the Activity Feed. Take a look at the ActivityManager at MSDN. Also check out this "SharePoint Twitter" sample.

  • the Central Admin app pool account can write to the config database But then we lose the whole point - I want my site collection administrators to be able to manage the schedule! The only alternative solution I can think of is to have another timerjob that polls some kind of queue (for example a sharepoint list in my site collection) for new timerjobs to create, and creates it if an item has been added...I have run into a problem several times now where I have developed a custom timer job, and I want my site collection administrators to manage the schedule of this job with a custom application page

  • appropriately. I can see the status change on the Solution Management page from deploying to deployed. There are no errors in the trace logs or event viewers. However, the 12 hive only contains files... added another server to the farm, moved the central admin with the stsadm tool, and removed the old server from the farm. Here is what I have tried: Deployed to two other farms: successfully deployed..., we were lucky enough to still have the soon to be decommisioned server that previously ran Central Admin (Server1). So, I added the server to the farm. Removed the Central Admin from the new Server

  • to exist as the anchor and context of the workflow. What I've started thinking about is a more abstract sort of workflow and how it would be useful in SharePoint. Workflows are user driven processes... nature. Typical workflows are about the document, like getting it approved or reviewed or some such. In this case the workflow needs to create new documents, InfoPath forms perhaps. Using task forms... the user find other related documents generated in the workflow. I find that all this rapidly gets messy in trying to retrofit this different type of workflow into SharePoint. There are ways and means

  • Has anyone restored Shared Services Databases from SP1 Server Farm to a new SP2 Server farm? I don't want to lose user related information link My Links etc. I followed the DB attach method as detailed here to restore site content from SP1 to SP2. I am little skeptical about touching the SSP dbs. Can we overwrite the new SSP databases with the old databases and restore all the information? If you have done this in the past, please feel free to share any important pointers. Thanks in advance. Update: I am using the User Replication Engine. It is working fine even for My Links

  • Scenario: User has 'Contribute' rights on a List. User creates a new ListItem on this List. User should only be able to edit or delete his own ListItems. How can I define that only the Owner (Created By) should be able to edit or delete this ListItem ? I was thinking about using an xslt if-statement with: ddwrt:IfHasRights(...) 'Created By' == 'Current User' Is this correct ? Or are there easier ways to do this ? See this page for a complete overview from all Rights.
